On Monday, news broke that KCRA reporter Mike Luery and photographer John Breedlove were attacked while covering a violent clash between leftists and the “pro-white” Traditionalist Workers Party (TWP) in Sacramento. It turns out they weren’t the only journalists attacked at the melee.
On Tuesday, Freedom Daily’s Jeff Rainforth said he covered the event as well, and was attacked while attempting to cover the violence. The attack against him, however, didn’t seem to make the evening news — or any other news for that matter.
When I heard about the stabbings, I rode over to the capitol to try & get an idea if the attacks were an attempt to deny freedom of speech.
I interviewed one of the counter-protesters (who actually disagreed with the violent tactics used) to get his side of the story. He told me that while he disagreed with the nationalists, they had the right to speak. He called those who engaged in violence to stop the nationalists from speaking, “domestic terrorists.”
Once I finished filming the interview, the masked, Black Bloc anarchist pictured above asked if I was with “media.” I told him I was & gave him my card.
A few minutes later, as I shot more footage of the scene, the anarchist yelled to the crowd of about 70-100 counter-protesters that I was “right-wing press” (he had looked up Freedom Daily). He repeated it again. I was then approached by several Communists/anarchists. They began yelling, screaming, cussing, telling me to “get the f-ck out of here you piece of sh-t!”
I attempted to have a conversation with them, but, apparently the terrorists weren’t in the mood. As the screaming continued, someone from behind threw water on me and my DSLR camera I was filming with. Others behind me kicked me in the legs.
Here’s a video he posted to YouTube:
Other journalists were attacked as well:

Despite what the counter-protesters said, law enforcement told reporters it was the Communists who initiated the violence.
According to the L.A. Times:
“A series of violent clashes this weekend involving neo-Nazis permitted to rally at the state Capitol was initiated not by the white nationalist group but by counter-protesters, a law enforcement official said Monday.”
“If I had to say who started it and who didn’t, I’d say the permitted group didn’t start it,” said California Highway Patrol officer George Granada, a spokesman for its Protective Services division. “They came onto the grounds and were met almost instantly with a group of protesters there not to talk.”
The leftists group involved was identified as “BAMN,” or “The Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration, and Immigrant Rights and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary.”
“We need to make clear to every fascist and fascist-sympathizer promoting white supremacy and racist violence that they will face militant, organized, and determined opposition. Their rally must be stopped by any means necessary,” the group said on Facebook. The group, Rainforth said, supported the terrorist attacks against Trump supporters in San Jose.
This is the direct result of the lawless and perverted Obama regime, which has turned a blind eye to this type of leftist violence for the last seven-and-a-half years.
Make no mistake, this is Hillary Clinton’s base. They’re not interested in political discourse, and they have no desire to discuss public policy. They simply want you dead.
In February 2011, I first said that liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of rage and hate. Liberals, sadly, prove that assertion correct on just about any given day. At this rate, it won’t be long before one of these individuals actually murder someone. And then all hell will break loose.
Rainforth has much more here.
